'Anarcho-Capitalist' Javier Milei Wins Elected Argentina's New President in Landslide Victory

Javier Milei, a libertarian politician in Argentina who describes himself as an "anarcho-capitalist", has been elected President of Argentina. He defeated the ruling party candidate Sergio Massa in a run-off election, winning around 56% of the vote to Massa's 44%. Milei campaigned on pledges to reduce the role of the state and flatten Argentina's political establishment. Argentina has been experiencing high inflation and rising poverty in recent years under previous populist governments. Milei's victory represents a major shift in Argentine politics towards a more libertarian, small-government ideology.
